Be swept away by the story of young Jim Hawkins, caught up in his journey to the Caribbean islands upon a ship with a memorable and explosive crew, and led by the cryptic map from a Dead Man's Chest.

Predictable, but enjoyable

First off- Recording quality is excellent. Other than the cheesy music which begins every chapter, I have no reservations.

The quality of the story? Its good. Its a simple story, with nothing terribly complex or insightful, but its good. A "brain candy" book for people from some years ago perhaps. Very much enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone looking for an escape on a pirate adventure for a while. Young boys especially should read this.
